Ireland’s new Morgan dealership officially launched

Kirwan’s Garage in Camolin, Co. Wexford, has been awarded a prestigious Morgan dealership.

The new dealership, currently the only one of its kind in Ireland, was officially launched last month.

The launch revealed a lively Morgan scene in Ireland, with many enthusiasts and collectors defying the January cold to drive to the event and display their cars outside.

Commenting on the addition of the historic handbuilt British sports car to his portfolio of new and used cars, Donal Kirwan said: “I’ve always had an interest in Morgan cars. It’s a family owned business and has been for a hundred years and their ethics and values are very similar to our own.”

Also in attendance was Mark Ledington of Morgan Motor Company, who flew into Ireland to help officially launch the new dealership. Speaking at the event, he said how delighted the car manufacturer was to have a representation in Ireland at Kirwan’s, “for hopefully decades to come”.

“We choose our dealers carefully and we do not appoint dealers for volume sales,” said Mark.

He added: “We were impressed with the attention to detail and level of customer service at Kirwan’s. It’s a long running family business and a good match for us.”

The event was an opportunity to get up close to some beautiful samples of some of the range, including the Plus 4 and a modern take on the iconic 3 Wheeler.

The Morgan Motor Company based in Malvern, UK, has been making bespoke sports cars for over a hundred years.  Each car is handbuilt to the highest standards of craftsmanship, and just 1300 cars are built each year at the factory in Malvern.

The company will tailor your car exactly to your specification with a range of options and upgrades available, from the paint colour and upholstery, to even the piping on the carpets.

Kirwan’s will be selling the full portfolio of Morgan cars. The 3 Wheeler, will sell from roughly €42,000, the 4/4 from roughly €52,995 and a Plus 4 from around €60,000, all depending on the level of specification.
